Reviews

Dr. Perisch is thorough and so knowlegeable. I had so many inconvenient symptoms and could not figure out how to manage them. After my initial visit to rule out cancer (colonoscopy), he explained that i had an extended colon which further complicated my i b s symptoms. (This explained why my digestion has always been erratic) Having a plan and more knowledge, I am able to more effectively manage my symptoms. That has changed my life drastically for the better!!!! I recommend Dr. Persich 100%.

Everyone was kind and did a good job. I am glad to meet Dr. Persich. They also did a fellow up to make sure I was well after my test.

An out of network anesthesiologist was used for my procedure in May of 2021, and now I owe Anesthesiology Affiliates $780.00. My Heath insurance provider, Blue Cross, will not pay this claim since it is out of network. I called Dr. Persich’s office several times to find out why they used an out of network anesthesiologist for my procedure. The doctor, facility, and lab were in network. As of October 2021 there has been no explanation. When I speak to the billing department, they give me a number to call to speak to a supervisor, but the call goes to voicemail and no one returns my call. Follow-up to original post: My bill was adjusted from $780.00 to $500.00. I am revising my review.

Dr. Persius has done most of my colonoscopies. I wouldn’t have had another one done since I am 75, but my experience with. Dr. Persius has been so positive, I was willing to do it one more time.
